Madison Avenue UK
Introducing Madison Avenue UK – we are an 11 piece soul band based in Derbyshire, available for weddings, corporate functions, parties, festivals, pubs and clubs.
Named after a street near the famous Stax Studios in Memphis, we are an authentic celebration of Atlantic/Stax soul, with a little Motown, some disco and other songs in a soulful style.
Our standard offering includes all costs and the following:
- 110 minutes of live music (typically 50's and 60's over two sets, but we’re flexible);
- Pre-mixed iPod tracks: we have a large selection and can customise genres and provide some content of choice for the breaks and until midnight
- Travel, set-up, set-down
- Weddings only: learning a special first dance (as long as it reasonably fits our vocals/instruments)
- Weddings only: once booked, we can arrange a pre-visit to the location to meet up and discuss details.
We are constantly broadening our set list to enable us to offer more choice and customisation for your function or party. We may also be able to add requests, by arrangement.

Great band, we hired them for our wedding reception in October 2019 and they were absolutely fantastic. All of our guests agree, as they have all been messaging me and talking about them for weeks after. Would highly recommend, they will keep you dancing all night.
First time at Blidworth Welfare and what a brilliant performance, excellent from start to finish. Really nice people to chat to as well. Nothing but positive feedback given from all customers.
Look forward to a return visit from you all.
